BATON ROUGE - Members of the School Drug Task Force arrested a 16-year-old they said was caught with a loaded gun in their book bag today in East Baton Rouge Parish.
EBRSO spokesperson Casey Rayborn Hicks said the 11th grader at McKinley High School was confronted by administrators about possible drug use, and fled on foot.
Hicks said when administrators caught the teen, a .22-caliber handgun was found in their book bag with one bullet in the chamber.
Deputies booked the teen into the Juvenile Detention center for brining a gun on school property.
Hicks said students with information about this incident or similar incidents should notify school administrators, or contact the sheriff's office.
